Statisticians employ statistical methods to collect and analyze data. If you decide to be a statistician, you can help solve problems using statistics in business, engineering, healthcare, or other many other fields.
As a statistician, you might decide what information needs to be gathered to address a specific problem and then find ways to collect the data you need. You might design surveys, come up with experiments, or create opinion polls to collect this data. Once you have gathered the data, you would then analyze and interpret the data and write a report to share your conclusions.
